"Constant whining and degradation of SEC football players"
? Goodness. Constant, huh? Does it coincide with your constant boasting and blathering of 'successes'? Wonder if the crap wasn't constant would anyone have anything to say? What, we can hand out praise and people can boast constantly but not take/accept criticism?
I think you're boiling your Okra again. The SEC has cultivated its own attention and reputation. Not my fault. All I mentioned was, "Wake me when there's news.".
If there wasn't constant crap coming from the conference anybody that follows college ball wouldn't give it a thought. Its not 'news' if its always happening RE: conditioned to it. If the institutions/conference atmosphere never changes, reap what you sow, right? Last year alone was it 10-20? LSU players were academically ineligible while #1 in the nation? Coach of the Year Les Miles response (paraphrased) 'Everybody's ineligible. Happens everywhere so whats the issue?'. 4 players (top 2 DB's and RB) got suspended 1 game (1 game?) for failed drug tests. Starting QB (and a LB or DB?) were suspended 4 games for a felony bar fight to start the season? Thats just from everyday following not sitting here looking.
Come bowl time headlines were swirled again yet the team votes 5 bowl captains - Claiborne, Mathieu, Jefferson, Blackwell and I can't recall the other kid. <--team leaders? Captains? Set the standards high I see. "Tradition". Here, when I was looking at the SEC All Conf. team I noticed a trend in majors with the LSU players so I took a closer look
LSU's 2011 Football Roster
122 student athletes
- 12 w/o bio info-- of those 12 all are underclassmen-- only 11 are on 2012's roster and those 11 are still w/o bio info
- 34 Undeclared/General Studies (30%)
- 30 Sport Administration (28%)
- 12 Management (11%)
- 11 "Undecided" ( 10% (1-Jr, 1-Sr and Micheal Brockers))
LSU must have the best YMCA management school in the U.S. that supports individuality in education by encouraging their 'Student Athletes' to design their own curriculum.. ironically they've had top5-10 recruiting classes every year since plastic was invented.
Now wheres that official NCAA Academic Progress Rate? Think this skews it as I pointed out previously? Toss in a kid with ambition and it screws up the LSU grading curve. (Yes. I just used 'grading curve' and 'LSU' in the same sentence
Pardon, I'm whining and degrading the SEC. I'm the cause. I apologize. I should be showering praise for holding such respectable standards.
5.) I made no claims as to the majors of SEC football players being difficult, simply that they are probably on par with other major football stars' majors. Therefor, why would I need to spend the time to dig them up?
but you gathered both an incomplete yet incorrect list of Big10 players and posted that?.. now pleading ignorance by adhering to assumption yet standing pat pointing.. seriously, p? C'mon, you're better than that.
You're twisting a helluva tale. Gotta hand it to ya.. just remember I'm not in SEC country and my brothers the Clemson grad in the family
btw lists coming along as I have time to organize it
